The annual Children’s Week is taking place from Saturday 22 October until Sunday 30 October 2022 with the theme “All Children have the right to a standard of living that supports their wellbeing and healthy development”.
Various local councils, not-for-profit organisations, schools and early childhood services have organised open days, special events, activities and more to recognise all the little ones while also highlighting the importance of play, wellbeing and protection to the development of kids.
The best part is that all of these Children's Week activities are FREE to enjoy for families with children aged from birth to 12 years!
So if you’ve got a little one, this celebration is a wonderful time to take advantage of the fun, engaging and educational experiences as you create wonderful memories together.
We’ve put together this list where you can find Children’s Week activities in your area so you can pick the best event for you and your family.
